Atopic eczema: Most commonly, this turns out to be atopic eczema. Treatment usually involves mild corticosteroid creams (children are more sensitive to steroids than adults), medicated baths, and various skin emolliating techniques. Most kids outgrow it, but how long that takes varies considerably. A dermatologist will make a precise diagnosis and tailor a treatment plan to your child's specific situation.
